Hey, is the whole forum invited? Or is it just a private sort of affair?  ;)

If I could talk the wife into it I'd be up for a road trip. Haven't been down to NC in over 10 years.

Hey does the Moonshiners Reunion involve camping. (not that im trying to imply anything) We for a while now been talking about a camping get together.

I could maybe afford one of these bikes for the ride.

(http://nwhog.files.wordpress.com/2008/05/honda-70.png)

I even have a leather jacket and engineer boots. 

Im thinking we could weld something like this onto bluesman's bike so we can get the homebrews down there.

When in 2011 is the Moonshiners Reunion?

Who wants to go? Maybe we should make this a get together for a homebrew meet and greet "tasteing".

I have a bud I have to visit that just moved to Charleston. May be able to convince him to go too.

Is it near Charleston?

I need an excuse to buy some camping gear.

Could be loads of fun.

With Tubercle there ya know it is gonna be a real party.

I take it one step further too, especially with work associates. I refer to everyone else as it.

"What time does it get to the job site"

"It must work over time today"

Now that sexual harassment is out I push the boundaries in other ways.

About once a month I'll end about every third sentence when speaking to my supervisor with "As the prophets foretold".
 
 And if she ask me anything I'll start with "our father Amen-Ra is pleased and has sent rain for the crops"....

Drives her nuts.

 Those friends have now been Tuberclized 8)

 If y'all make it down here, remember Barney has rules and all must obey to be a welcome guest. And I quote:"NO PETS, NO GLASS CONTAINERS, NO LOUD RADIO MUSIC, NO 4 WHEELERS, NO MODIFIED GOLF CARTS, NO GATORS..." Those are the rules. They are the only rules but they are strictly enforced. Just about anything else goes.

   I got busted a few years back because I was standing there with a glass jar in my hand. One of the Gestapo ran up and yelled "You there! No glass!" Tubercle was like, Crap! I'm going down, man; I'm outta here and may never see my family again. Gestapo handed me one of those red plastic cups out of the stack he was carrying and said "pour it in here". The Bastard demanded a bribe too, so I gave him a sip. We were cool after that. Of course, as soon as Gestapo walked off, Tubercle poured his sh%& back into the jar. That SH^& will leach stuff out of plastic (I'm talking 3% beer 8)  ;D). Well, maybe. :P

 Of all the years Tubercle has been attending, no violence has been observed, The crowd is 18 to 80, blind, cripple and crazy. One time the Gestapo (some time before daylight) dragged someone by Tubercle's campsite as he and some some friends we sitting around picking guitars, I believe we were drinking beer also if memory serves me right, and the perpetrator was yelling "he hit me first" like some pitiful schoolyard b!T$H. Other than that its real laid back. Food , drinking and a lot of music.

Just have to start the list of who is going.

Bluesman? He has to go.

beerocd? He has to go.

Nic? Come on man.

Loopy and bografan? Where are those guys anyway?

Boulderbrewer?

mrrnate, you are in right?

Some of us can go in the same vehicle. Maybe rent a van.

If we pull it together Ill bet our group will have the best beer and food at the whole place. Not sure about the moonshine though.  ;)

So, you're all talking about camping there? Or just meet up on Saturday?
Family - or He-Man woman haters style?
Do we need guns? If so I'll have to drive.
How crazy is the cuisine getting? Is there electric to hook up a spit - or blenders (margaritas)?

There's only 11 rooms in the Plum Hollow Motel - Let's take em all! That'd be pretty cool.
except I hear there's bedbugs in that part of the world  :(

I say make a weekend of it cause some of us would be coming from far. I think it would be a ten hour drive or so from Philly. Ill pick anyone up at the airport who wants to fly.

I would say not bring the family. For me anyway; makes it a major ordeal.

Camping could be fun.But...ya know how these southerners are though. In which case you may need guns. Some of those people down there dont know that the Civil war is over.

Maybe we should hang a little rebel flag on the antenna after we cross the MD line. That starts about an hour south a here.

Sounds like fun bringing the family. I just cant imagine bringing a three year old on a 10 hour drive (is that even possible?) then a weekend of camping (my wife detests camping) and then a ten hour drive home.

There will be plenty of woman and kids there, I dont have to bring my own.

  Tubercle survived another year. ;D It was great. Good bands this year. A couple sucked but South85 rocked the house (http://www.south85.com/) as well as Evergreen (http://www.scottmossmusic.com). Barney (the proprietor) put on a good show with the Plum Hollow Band as always but he was struggling. Been through 2 years of throat cancer and broke his foot a few weeks ago. After the last set they just about had to carry him off the stage, literally. I just hope he makes it. The biggest crowd I have seen there; they estimated 3000.

  To answer a few questions:

 BEEROCD - No electrical hook ups. And if you crank up a generator it will be beat with an axe handle. There is a "bath house" with showers and such. The motel rooms have electricity but you better reserve it tomorrow. Call Debby @ 864-680-0225 if you really want one of these.
  Bring a gun if want to. Everybody else will have one so if you don't have yours, you can borrow one if you need to. ;D

  You will want to build a fire, BYOW (bring your own wood). If y'all are serous about really doing this, RDWHAHB. I'll bring a truck load of wood.

  BLUESMAN - A case of OFF for the daytime but a jacket for the night. It gets cold down next to the creek. Unless you got a woman with you :D Then both of will be cold ::)

  CAPOZZOLI - The Civil War is not over, we just restin' a bit. We even raised our submarine to get it going again (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H._L._Hunley_%28submarine%29). Just say "How Y'all?" to everybody you meet. You'll be OK ;)

 And as far as bringing______. Make sure to bring enough______ for everybody.

You might need a _______  instead.  No way should those be shared.

On the other note. I might have to make the trip. It may turn out that I may have to notify the wife like Mr. Nate. A note stapled to my pillow.

Oh I meant to say. I was working on this five story fire escape across from an inner city high school the other day. The kids were bad and kept coming to the windows to shout at us.

They were calling me a "red neck".  8)

All in the perception. I'm just a guy. Never meanin no harm. Someday the mountain might get me but the law never will.

  That was Popcorn Sutton in that video. He lived around Maggie Valley, NC. He got busted a few years back when his still house caught on fire during a run and someone called the fire dept. He killed himself shortly afterwards by doing the old put the hose from the exhaust inside the car thing. :-\

He was already sick, if he went to jail he would have died there. So rather than spend his last days in prison, he ended things on his own terms. Guess it was his fault any way you look at it, but it just proves you can't be far enough away from your neighbors.

Popcorn came from generations of moonshiners.  He was probably one of the last of a dying breed.  :-\
He's a very simple man and quite frankly funny as hell.  It was the moonshine that made him and broke him.
It's a rough life but he seemed to be happy.

Back on topic....

 There are no moonshiners at the "moonshiners reunion".

 Barney Barnwell, the owner/operator of this event does descend from a line of moonshiners and puts this bluegrass festival and get-together every year just to celebrate the heritage. He is a musician and owns a recording studio, Overall Productions, and is the founder of C.S.A. - Conservation of Southern Artist. He's even made a movie. It's a comedy about a moonshiner getting over on the law, kind of like the Dukes of Hazzard kind of thing, and follows loosely the song "Dooley".

I’ve been trying to understand the irrational fear many people have about discussing distillation. If you even mention the “D” word some people get weak in the knees and their eyes start rolling around in their heads. 

So, I went to my confidant and adviser, my wife, and was discussing peoples’ reactions to the D-word on this forum with her.   My 11 year old son was listening and looking thoughtful, “Dad, it’s just like Lord Voldemort – ‘He Who Shall Not Be Named!’  They’re afraid of the name.”

Hmm…  I think he’s got something there.  There is a great deal of misinformation and superstition about distilling out there.  Many people think that if you even whisper the D-word, the boogeyman is gonna jump through the computer monitor and hack away at you with an axe.  Only the actual act of distilling alcohol (without a license) is illegal.

On this forum we discuss every other form of alcoholic beverage production - inside-out, upside-down, forward, backwards, and sideways - fearlessly.  Why does the room clear when someone mentions the D-word?   I believe it’s superstition -plain and simple.

Perhaps if it were called something else it might not be so scary?  How about:
Purification of a Select Compound by Phase-Change Separation?   

That covers both liquid to gas and liquid to solid phase change purification. 
We could call it PSC-PCS for short.   

There’s nothing like a good PC acronym to take the scary out of a thing.

CruiseAmerica tells me it'd be about $180 ea w/ 5 guys, about $150 apiece for 7. Plus gas. That's for 4 nights, estimated mileage included. It's about 700 miles (12 hours) one way from my doorstep. Obviously that goes up if we don't cram it up to capacity, which I'd be inclined not to do anyway.

With any luck, I'll be a free man by then. We'll get some kegs of homebrew, a few mason jars full of completely legal, taxed liquor, and ride the Carpetbagger Express clear down to South-By-God-Caroline! Let's do this thing!

Hell, Bubba can tell me I have a purdy mouth, I don't mind. But I draw the line at squealing like a piggie!

I looked it up, because I swore I remembered something about this from my younger days, and it appears to be true. In the commonwealth of VA, passengers are, indeed, allowed to consume alcohol while the vehicle is in motion. All other states we would be passing through are compliant with federal guidelines in which the living quarters of RVs are excepted from open container laws.

 Camo is perfectly acceptable, not just cowboy hats but any part of the attire including socks and underware. Biker do-rags are usually reserved for the socially elite but hey, if you got one, go for it; you can't hide money. I will probably be wearing a sleeveless Skynyard t-shirt too, so let me know which one(s) you are planning on so we don't "clash". 38 Special, Charlie Daniels, Marshall Tucker, Guns and Roses, Molly Hatchett, Confederate Railroad and 3 Doors Down are other options.

Also, I plan on bringing a banjo. Does this attract the aforementioned redneck women, or will I actually have to learn how to play it?

A banjo will attract the women but they may not be your "type". It seems only young, nubile, half drunk/half nekkid, want to party all night, give you free beer types of redneck girls are attracted to the banjo. Carrying around a banjo comes with great responsibility so use this power wisely.

 I sadly report that Barney, the founder and owner of the Moonshiner's Reunion passed away to Hillbilly Heaven yesterday after several years battling cancer.

  The status of future festivals held at his place is unknown at this time.

 According to his wife Debbie the staff at the palliative care unit allowed friends and family to stand around him playing their instruments and singing and that's what they were doing when he passed. That's the way it should have been.

I'm mad as dirt for missing this. Crap in my hand chicken, we dropped the pile on this one.

I'm sorry to say we all need a kick in the a$$ to get us going about 4 months ahead of time. The crowd here at the aha forum will get there for sure. I hope next year we all can make it and send Barney's soul off in a good ol' homebrewed fashion.

I want to apologize for all that said they would make, I'm damn sorry I missed this.

You know we have a very nice bluegrassfest 4 miles up from me every year and you know what I think I did see Barney at this fest.

 Edit "That was a few years back though."

How was it?

 I have to admit I missed it :-[ :-[ :-[ for the first time in I don't know when. Ms. Tubercle and I were both rushing around getting things done (she actually had to work) and by the time we had a chance to go late Sat we were exhausted. We just looked at each other and shrugged. Life gets in the way sometimes. Several of our friends that were there kept texting us and giving a play-by-play :D At least as long as they were able and the text were intellegable :o

 The fest will continue. Debbie (Barney's wife) said it would go on. This was their main source of income besides Barney's recording studio.

 The fest has been extended to 3 days and I believe they are opening the gates on Thursday now for those that want to camp.

 I just hate I missed South85, they have a new CD out and I'm sure they did some of their new stuff.

And Evergreen

That Roger Padgett is unreal on a giutar.

 I'm sure there will be new videos posted. I'll see if I can find  some.

Dang....

 I didn't realize they had done a tribute film of his funeral....


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wse2xt9YCNo

I know none of Y'all got to meet him but he was unique. But, not unlike many more like him who enbodies the spirit of really great people who loves nothing more than life. While watching this, I saw saw many of my friends, some I don't know their name nor them mine, and some I do. But even those I didn't know by name I would see them every year and we would share a smile, a nod, a drink and a sense of peace and commonallity.

We all know a Barney. Just some one who would sit and drink a beer with you.

I'm glad that through this forum I was able to introduce to you this one.

Tonight @ 9:00pm (est) on the History Channel "You Don'y Know Dixie" comes on again. Ol' Barney is featured in a good part of it. They were in the process of filming this when he passed away.

Catch it if you get a chance.
